[ALLY] How to play a sound...
[1/16] from: carl:rebol at: 10-May-2001 20:34
Here's how: port: open sound:// sound: load %gumby.wav insert port sound <sound starts to play...> How to get it? 1) Download View/Pro 1.2 (on rebol.com right now) 2) Send us that $49 you've been promising. Gets you the View/Pro key. You'll need it to play sound. And then, you can encrypt your sounds too. Just in case. -Carl

No. Only uncompressed sounds at this time. Sound support is intended as support for GUIs, games etc., not for streaming. "Load"ing and uncompressing a typical MP3 with a 3-minute song would uncompress to over 50 MB of RAM. You probably don't want that :-). -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]

error? try [sndprt: open sound://] etc. Same for 'insert, because that can cause errors as well, if the target system supports sound in general, but cannot play your sound because of hardware limitations. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]

You could also build a shared library that handles your mp3s. Shouldn't be too difficult with the piles of public domain console based players available. mp3-lib: load/library %mp3-lib.so play-mp3: make routine! [file [string!]] mp3-lib "mp3_play" foreach file load %/my/mp3-dir/ [ play-mp3 form file ] ;-- Of course, you could also just use CALL to ; accomplish the same ... -jeff

Great!!!!!!!!!!! I'll buy the /View key ASAP! Just one question comes to my mind: How can simply protect my script which is using sound features from errors when the script is running on unregistered version of /View? Maybe unregistered version of /View should have ignored the sound code automatically without interupting the script...any thougths? regards Cyphre

Thanks Holger, It looks like there will be growing lots of REBOL trackers/sythesizers/sound-systems in near future :-) Keep up the cool work! regards, Cyphre

Does it do insert port load %sound.mp3 ?

Actually, I think it can be done... need to think more about it. At 5/11/01 06:35 AM +0200, you wrote:

MS IE seems to constantly check for system upgrades etc when invoked. -- Graham Chiu

heh, OK. Carl, we need some notification mechanism. It could be done as one other parameter of user config. Simply said - what about automatic check for new version, request for download or at least any kind of dekstop GUI element showing us we are not using up-to-date version?

I just hope my VISA card transfer was OK :-)

Eh? So MM capabilities not in free version? ... hmm, at least something at beginning ...

Replying to my own post again. I downloaded the view.exe version and ran it from a network drive. Somehow it thought the rebol dir was it's home, and the user.r in that directory had protect-system in it. All fixed now. -Larry

That is too cool. Any chance of getting MP3 support? TBrownell
[14/16] from: depotcity:telus at: 10-May-2001 22:41
Better yet, STREAMING mp3! PS - and while your at it, throw in some streaming mpeg4 video 8}

Hey ;-) I know all the features would be cool, but I don't want more features in Rebol, before modules and dynamic component systems are available! We are growin fast :-) 514 KB rebol.exe - what a beast :-) Cheers, -pekr-

Hi Carl Thats great! I wondered what you guys were doing in your spare time ;-) One small problem with the example:
>> port: open sound:// >> sound: load %chord.wav
** Script Error: Word sound is protected, cannot modify ** Near: sound: load %chord.wav
>> snd: load %chord.wav >> insert port snd
== 24231 Bong! It works. Does it support other sound file types .au, etc.? -Larry
